The Fixx – Taking The Long Way Home lyrics

It's not where you are, it's what you think
Satellite beams, trusting your instincts
Miles down the road, trees grow in place
Our roots now download, not face to face
Not face to face
Mm-hmm

The prison of rules can mess with your head
Enjoy your time, look for the magic instead
Ghosts in your life have now run their course
You'll find that the peace comes without force
Without force

I feel like taking the long way home tonight
Maybe I'll turn left or then again, right
Keeping my eyes on that distant harbor light
The seas may be rough but the stars shine bright

Are you dead as you live? Please come alive
Show me the pearl buried deep inside
Step off the clock, come for a ride
It's more fun to seek than it is to hide
Than it is to hide

I feel like taking the long way home tonight
Maybe I'll turn left or then again, right
Keeping my eyes on that distant harbor light, oh
The seas may be rough but the stars shine bright

There's a warning sign on the harbor lights
Straight to the heart, don't wrong your right

There'll be no more left
There'll be no more rights
Keeping my eye on the harbor lights
Taking the long way home

I feel like taking the long way home tonight
There'll be no more left
There'll be no more rights tonight
It's not where you are, it's what you think
Satellite beams, trusting your instincts
I feel like taking the long way home tonight

Taking the long, taking the long way home, ooh
Taking the long, taking the long way home
Are you dead as you live? Please come alive
Show me the pearl buried deep inside
Don't you feel like taking the long way home tonight?
We can only taking the long way home tonight
